Promise, Price, and Power of Redemption Transcript

  Praise the Lord. Friends, it’s so good to have you with us today. I have my son Aaron, and we’re gonna be sharing about the price of redemption. Jesus has already paid the price for your forgiveness, for your healing, for your peace, for your prosperity, for all the promises of God, all the promises of God in Him are yes, and in Him, amen. Stay tuned. Friends, it’s so good to have you with us today. We’ve been teaching on redemption. Last week, we taught the whole week on the promises of redemption. And thank God for the promises that God the Father made of redemption to us. But then we began this week talking about the price of redemption, and we said the promise of redemption has already been made, and the price of redemption has already been paid. But when we’re talking about the price of redemption, we’re talking about the blood of Jesus. And I know a lot of times, we talked about this briefly yesterday, but the old Pentecostals would talk a lot about the blood. And you know, now we teach in our circles a lot about the grace of God. But essentially, when we’re talking about the blood of Jesus and we’re talking about the grace of God, we’re talking about the same thing because the blood says Jesus paid it all and grace says Jesus did it all. Amen? So, we’re really talking about the same thing. And we’re gonna jump into Romans chapter 3 today and begin to talk about redemption here and the price of redemption being the blood of Jesus. But we’re gonna start in Romans 3:21. Up to now in Romans, Paul’s been talking about, in Romans chapter 1, he says, “The gospel is the revelation of righteousness.” And he says, “The Gentiles need righteousness.” They’re caught up in philosophy, idolatry, lust, all kinds of sin and ungodliness. Romans chapter 2, he says, “Religious people,” or the Jews, “They’re caught up in performance.” It says “They make their boast in the law, but through breaking the law, they dishonor God.” So, they’re caught up in sin. And then he says in Romans 3, “Everyone has sinned, all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” So because of sin, we needed redemption. And so, he begins to talk about in Romans 3:21, “Now the righteousness of God without the law, apart from the law is made known, revealed or manifested, being witnessed by the law of the prophets, even the righteousness of God, which is by the faith of Jesus; to all and upon all them that believe, for there’s no difference.” So, what he’s saying is the cure for sin is righteousness. And Jesus has paid the price for our sin. So, we receive righteousness by faith. And he says this, “For all have sinned,” Jews and Gentiles have both sinned. That’s what he proved in Romans 1, verse 18 to end of the chapter in Romans chapter 2. And then in the beginning of Romans chapter 3. He says, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” And most of us know that, most people understand sin, and they will not argue with you about sin. But notice what he goes on to say in verse 24. This is so powerful, “Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” We are justified free of charge. It doesn’t cost us anything. It cost God, everything. It cost Him His own Son. It cost Jesus his own life. But it doesn’t cost us anything, it’s already been paid for. He says, “Through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, who God sent forth to be a propitiation or a payment through faith in His blood.” See that? It’s faith in the blood of Jesus that receives righteousness and redemption. to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins that are passed.” Thank God. Man, that’s the past tense of the gospel in my opinion. When it says, “For the blood was shed for the remission of sins that are passed,” I think it’s talking about the past tense of the cross. I think it’s talking about all sin was paid for, all of humanity’s sin. I’ve heard this and I believe it, that every sin from Adam to Armageddon, from the beginning of humanity to the end of humanity was paid for in one person at one time on the cross of Jesus. Amen?


  I love in verse 21 that it talks about that the law and the prophets both witnessed Jesus. They both witnessed, you know, this type of righteousness




  that would be given freely. And you know this righteousness is so much better than what the law can produce.


  Because the law, you know, legalism cannot change someone’s heart.


  No. The people in the Old Testament understood the law. The law can show you sin. It says in verse 20 here that, “By the law is the knowledge of sin.” But the law cannot show you righteousness. It can only show you sin. And Jesus came and paid the price for sin and brought righteousness. And it’s kind of like in, I believe it’s Matthew chapter 17 at the Mount of Transfiguration, Peter, James, and John were there, and Jesus was transfigured with Moses and Elijah. And Peter, you know, speaks up and says, “Hey, let us build three tabernacles, one for Moses representing the law, and one for the Elijah representing the prophets, and one for Jesus.” And God said, “This is my beloved Son, hear ye Him.” Because Moses, the law, was pointing to Jesus, and the prophets, it tells us in 1 Peter chapter 1, were prophesying of the grace that was to come in the person of Jesus. So, they were all looking forward to Jesus. And so, when Jesus came, it says, “We’re justified freely by his grace through His redemption, and God sent Him to be the payment.” Jesus is the total payment for all sin of all time. His blood was the total payment. He says, “Propitiation of covering a payment through faith in His blood.” It’s faith in the finished work of Jesus, in what He did on the cross. He says, “To declare his righteousness for the remission,” the absolute remission, there’s no remembrance. They’re completely blotted out. The absolute remission of our sin, he says, “That are passed through the forbearance of God.” In other words, God knew we would do it and forgave us anyway. Isn’t that marvelous? And when I think that’s talking about past in verse 25, in my opinion, that’s talking about the past tense of the cross. And Jesus said again, those three beautiful words in John 19:30, “It is finished.” He sent him, “God sent Jesus to declare at this time His righteousness that He might be just in the justifier of him who believes in Jesus.” The only way God could play fair is base everything on Jesus. And if you believe on Jesus, you’re righteous; and if you don’t believe on Jesus, you’re not. That’s the only way you could get it.


  I love that it says that He is both just and the justifier. You know, God is just.




  God is fair. You know, you can trust God. I know there are unfair situations that happen in life. There are terrible things that happen in life, but God is always just, and you can always trust Him to make things right and He will.


  And Jesus is also the justifier, and that means He’s the one that can make you just, He’s the one that can make you righteous, make you holy.


  He can make you like Him.


  And that’s really amazing that He is both just and the justifier. He’s both, you know, he’s both a judge, but He’s also merciful,


  and He is fair in His mercy. Yes. And you know, sometimes people think about, “Well, life’s not fair,” but I say, “You know what? Life isn’t fair. We have favor.” I look at the side of grace, that, man, we are way ahead of where we would be if we didn’t have Jesus. And you know, there’s a devil. There’s problems in the world. Sin has had an effect on the world. Satan is the God of this world. But Jesus defeated Satan in His death and resurrection. And so, when you believe on Jesus, you are justified by faith in Jesus. And you know, “He’s just and the justifier of him who believes on Jesus. Where’s boasting?” Can we boast? He says, “It’s excluded.” He says, “By what law? By the law of works? No, but by the law of faith.” Man, we’re justified by faith in Jesus. And he goes on and tells us in Romans chapter 4, that we receive righteousness by grace through faith. But then he moves over into Romans chapter 5 and says that we’re justified. And Aaron, if you’ll read in Romans chapter 5, verse 1 and verse 2. I love it in the New King James.


  It says, “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through Whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”


  I love it says, “Having been justified.” Man, we have already been justified by faith. We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. And then once we’re justified by faith, once we believe on Jesus, I can’t boast, you know, and say, you know, “I’m better than Aaron or I’m better than somebody else.” Aaron could probably boast and say He’s better than me. But that doesn’t mean much because I need lots of help, praise God. And you know, who wants to be the best sinner in hell? You know, we’re justified by faith in Jesus. Jesus never sinned. And we were given His righteousness as a gift, according to 2 Corinthians chapter 5, verse 21. And we who were sinful, Jesus paid for our sin, became a sin offering for us and gave us the righteousness of God as a gift. So, it says, “We have access by faith into grace wherein we stand.” Once we’re justified, we stand in grace. We stand by faith in grace and rejoice in the hope of the manifest presence and power, purpose of God in our life. The manifested glory of God. That’s talking about the presence of God, the purpose of God, and the power of God. And so, thank God for grace. Thank God for what He did. But it goes on then. And he tells us, you know, Jesus died for us when we were in sin. He died for the ungodly. In verse 6, there’s only one type of people He could die for. That’s ungodly because that’s the only kind that were out there. But he says, “Scarcely for a righteous man one will die: yet peradventure a good man, some would even dare to die.” “But God commended,” God made known, revealed and demonstrated, “His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Man, while we were still in sin, Jesus died for us. And if He died for us in that state, He says, “Much more.” Look at verse 9, Romans 5, verse 9, “Much more then,” if He loved you when you were sinner, if Christ died for you, when you were sinner, “Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.” God’s not mad at you, praise God. We’re saved from judgment. We’re saved from determined, lasting anger since we believed on Jesus. See, some people preach, “Man, you just come to God just like you are. He accepts you just like  But once you get saved, man, you gotta go to church. You gotta give your offering, you gotta do this, you gotta do that.” We add all these things onto Jesus and we make the grace of God ineffective by our rules. And that’s not what it’s about. Did you know what? It’s grace that saves you, and it’s grace that keeps you. It’s grace that saved you. It’s grace that changes you. Praise God. So, thank God for the grace of God. And so he says, “Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we’re gonna be saved from wrath.” He explains it more in verse 10, “For if when we were enemies, we were restored the right relationship, reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. Now Aaron, you have some teaching there on reconciliation from verse 11. Why don’t you share that, this word “reconcile,” what it means?


  Yeah, the word “reconcile,” it’s actually an accounting term, and it means “to have an exchange.”


  So, when Paul, you know, was ministering, there had to be a lot of exchanges going on, a lot of currency exchanges. And oftentimes, you know, if you go to money changes, they could try to rip you off and give you a bad exchange rate. You know, that’s happened to me before when I went on my honeymoon to Italy. I went with my wife, you know, Heather, and we had some cash that had been given to us at our wedding, and I just exchanged some at the airport. And then I realized after I left the airport that I actually got a really bad exchange rate.


  And it was very frustrating. But when there’s an exchange with God, God doesn’t rip you off. You’re always gonna turn out much better than


  you possibly could.


  And really, He gives you mercy for your sin. He gives you such a great exchange through the blood of Jesus.


  Yeah, we get righteousness for our sin. And you can go ahead and read about that later here in Romans 5, verse 17 to verse 21. And in fact, it says there, and this is this word again used that you’re talking about for reconciliation, the Greek word in the-


  It’s katallage.


  Katallage, and it means in exchange. It says, “Not only so, but we also join God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by Whom we have now received the atonement.” It’s that same Greek word, “katallage.” So, man, we have been restored the right relationship with God. We’ve been forgiven for our sins. We received peace for anxiety. We received righteousness for sin. We received, you know, prosperity for lack. I mean, it was a great exchange. We received health for sickness. Jesus paid for your health, for your healing, for your peace, for your provision, at the same time that He paid for your righteousness and you’ve been restored the right relationship with God. Now that we’re in right relationship with God, we ought to just be receiving. We’re on the good side of this deal, praise God, the goodness of God, the promises of God, because Jesus already paid for us to have it. We’re gonna take a short break, we’re gonna be back right after this. So, stay tuned and we’re gonna be talking more about the price of redemption. Blessings. Friends, thanks so much for being with us today. I’ve been teaching on the promise, the price, and the power of redemption. And you can download my other teachings on redemption, “Redemption” and “The Essence of Redemption” from our website store at These are available to you free of charge today because of the generosity of our partners. Blessings. Isaiah 5:13 says, they’re kept in because they have no knowledge. But when I found out the truth, I remember that I was so excited when I first heard the full gospel preached. When I found out I didn’t have to be sick and poor and defeated by the devil, that I could believe God, that God had a better life, I remember I was so excited! Friends, I’m so glad that you stayed with us. We are right here, and we’ve been talking from Romans chapter 3, verse 25 and 24, where it says, “We’re justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” But we’re gonna move on over to Hebrews chapter 9. And Hebrews is an amazing book, and it’s really talking about the covenants. And you know, when you begin to understand the covenants of the Bible, you begin to understand that the blood is very, very significant in the Bible. In fact, when you study the old covenant, there are a lot of blood offerings, but all those offerings were being paid forward essentially, right? They were looking forward to Jesus. And when Jesus came, Jesus’ blood completely paid off the sin debt. And so, I believe that, like the high priest when he went into the most holy place once a year, and he didn’t go without blood. He took blood for his own sins and blood for the sins of the people. But when Jesus came, those sins were eradicated. And there is no more remembrance of sin. And so, when you go through the book of Hebrews, we have this better covenant established on better promises. And what makes it better is Jesus. Because in the old covenant, God said, “If you’ll do this, then I will.” But in the New Testament, He says, “I’ll be merciful to your sins and your iniquities. I will remember no more.” So thank God, that’s the difference in the old covenant and the new covenant. And the old covenant was based on our performance and we couldn’t perform well enough. Now, there were people that were very blessed in the Old Testament, but it’s not because they performed well, it’s because they believed well. And in the New Testament, we’re all blessed if we understand it. When you’re born again, you’re blessed. I love something one of my good friends says, he says, “You know what? There’s only two kinds of believers, the ones that are blessed and know it, and the ones that are blessed and don’t.” If you’re born again, you’re blessed. You know, we started in Ephesians chapter 1, verse 7, “In Whom we have redemption,” this week, through His blood, even the forgiveness of sin.” But if you jump back up in verse 3, it says that, “God has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places, in Christ.” So these blessings, amen, are because of what Jesus did. So, in Hebrews chapter 8, we have this new covenant. He’s talking about if we got a new covenant, Hebrews chapter 7, then we need a better priest. And Jesus is the great High Priest of this new covenant. He says in Hebrews 8, “We have a new covenant, a better covenant established on better promises.” So, we got a new priest, we got a new covenant, and then we have a new sacrifice and a new sanctuary. And he begins in Hebrews 9 talking about the new sanctuary of the body of Christ. But then he moves over and begins to talk about the blood of Christ. So Aaron, why don’t you read Hebrews chapter 9, verse 11 through verse 14.


  It says, “But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation. Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood, He entered the most holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit, offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”


  Amen. So, he begins to talk about, you know, Christ now is this High Priest right, of this new covenant. And it says, “When He entered the holy place, it wasn’t by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood.” And he entered one time, one time with one sacrifice for all people of all time. And he says, “Having obtained eternal redemption for us.” Man, that’s amazing. That blood, you know, it talks about this in Hebrews chapter 12, that we have the blood of Christ “that speaks better things than the blood of Abel.” When Cain murdered Abel, Abel’s blood cried out from the ground for judgment. But Jesus’ blood cries out from the Throne Room of God in heaven for mercy. Praise God. His blood has already paid the price. It’s marvelous. He says, “If the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of heifers for sprinkling the unclean,” in verse 13, “Sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh.” If those Old Testament sacrifices purified your flesh, he says in verse 14, “How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit,” there’s a whole teaching in that, Jesus is an eternal spirit. His spirit can never die. His body died but His spirit never died. “Offered himself without spot to God, and purge your conscious,” purge your mentality, “your consciousness from dead works,” he says, “To serve the living God.” To me, when he says “purge your conscience from dead works,” he’s talking about the performance mentality of the Old Testament. Those things that we try to perform in our own strength and our own ability, they are dead works, they are fruitless, they are accomplishing nothing. But he says, “To make you servants of the living God.” We are servants of God today through the blood of Jesus. And it’s not our performance, it’s the performance of Jesus. Praise God. He goes on to talk about this, and we’ll have to share some of these things today, but even tomorrow, he says, “For this cause He’s the mediator of the New Testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament,” our sins have already been paid for. You know, the Bible actually says “The transgression of the law is sin,” 1 John chapter 3, verse 4. Whoever transgresses the law sins. So. Jesus already paid for the transgression of the law with His blood. “That they who are called might receive the promise of an eternal inheritance.” Again, He says, we have an eternal inheritance. And if we go into 1 Peter chapter 1, I believe, talks about that we have an inheritance that is “Incorruptible, undefiled, reserved in heaven for us that fades not away.” Praise God. We have this inheritance, Jesus paid for it. He says now, “Where a testament is,” where a will is, “There must be the death of the testator,” the one that wrote that will. “For a testament is of force,” it’s effective, “After men are dead. Otherwise it has no strength at all while the testator lives.” He says, “Wherefore neither the first testament, the Old Testament was dedicated without blood. For when Moses had spoken every precept,” I love this, “To all the people according to law, he took the blood of cows and of goats, with water and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled the book and the people.” You see Moses sprinkling the book and then sprinkling the people. And then he says this, “Saying, ‘This is the blood of the covenant, the blood of the testament,'” the last will and testament, Jesus died to enact it, and He rose again to carry it out, “Which God has enjoined to you.” God joined the promises to us by the blood of Jesus.


  Jesus is both the testator and the executor of His will.


  This is very unique, because normally, you know, for a will to be enacted, yes, the person who wrote the will has to pass away. But when you write a will, you actually assign someone to be the executor of that will. That means that person


  is gonna make sure that everything is administrated how it’s supposed to be. Everyone’s gonna get, you know, what they were assigned in the will. So, Jesus died, you know, so when He died, His will was enacted.


  The will of God was enacted, but not only that, Jesus rose again, so He could be the executor of that will. So, He’s the one that actually hands out what God’s will is. He hands out what His will is, what the Father’s will. His will, and the Father’s will are one and the same.


  So, He’s the executor of that will. This is the only time in the history of humanity-


  He died to enact it and He rose again to carry it out. Praise God. So, Jesus’ blood in His death, paid for all of our sins, paid for our forgiveness, paid for the promises, amen? But now He rose again so He can carry that will out. But how is that will carried out in our life? It’s carried out by the power of the Holy Spirit, which we’ll be talking about in the last part of this teaching, the end of this week, we’ll be talking about the power of the Holy Spirit. But praise God, it is the blood of Jesus that has completely paid for our sin. Man, what sin have we committed that is so great that the blood of Jesus  God not only paid for our sins, He overpaid for them, amen.


  And you know, Jesus is the mediator of this new covenant too. God, doesn’t want someone to get in between you and Him. You don’t have to go to someone to appeal on your behalf to God. You just go straight to Jesus. Jesus is the one Who lives to intercede for us.




  You know, God doesn’t want someone else to have to be a middleman between you and Him. God cares about you. You can go directly to God. If you have something that’s on your heart, something that you need prayer for, you can go straight to God. You can have other people pray with you and agree with you, but you actually don’t need anyone. You don’t need even a pastor or a holy person, a prophet. You can go straight to God yourself. Other people can come with you and agree with you. But really, you have access because Jesus paid for that access. He paid that, you know,




  VIP ticket for you to just go straight to the Throne Room.




  So, you don’t have to wait in the the grandstands. You don’t have to wait outside. You are now an insider, and you can go straight to the Throne Room.




  You can go straight to the Holy of Holies.


  Jesus is the great High Priest of this new covenant, and we are a priesthood of believers, and so thank God. We’re out of time today. We’re gonna share more on this tomorrow and what the blood of Jesus has already secured for us. But if you need prayer, feel free to call us here at the phone number that’s provided.
